It was a long time ago (2003 Worlds, I believe) and she just threw one or two in at the end of a practice session. I remember her reaction more than anything -- she totally was laughing at her coach after each attempt. I don't recall a wildly swinging free leg...just a cheated landing.

Not to take the thread off topic, but that has happened to me: When I hit "submit reply" I got logged off. After logging back in, I tried hitting the "back" button a few times, and my post was still there. I was able to then resubmit it. Hope this works for you if it happens again.

She not only landed it, but made it look so easy! Better than many men.
